Graham Potter said he was proud of his side’s display at Anfield.

But he went home disappointed with a 2-1 defeat to runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool.

The Albion head coach said: “We put a lot into the game against a top team.

“I thought we started the game okay but not good enough to really be how we want to be.

“Having said that, there wasn’t too much in the game.

“There was two set plays that made the scoreline 2-0 and then you have to survive some moments of course at Anfield.

“Over the 90 minutes we did a lot well.

“We showed a lot of personality, a lot of courage, a lot of quality against a really good team.

“You always know you are on the stretch, they can punish you.

“Any break is dangerous so lots to be positive about but still disappointed to come away with nothing.

“I was very proud of the effort and what we tried to do.”

Potter felt Aaron Connolly was fouled seconds before the free-kick verdict which brought Liverpool their first goal.

He added: “We didn’t deal with the free-kick well enough.

“Virgil Van Dijk is obviously very good in those situations.”
